in acting. there's no reason. it's not vacuum sealed. you don't have to separate them. he never said i better slow this acting down so she can catch up. >> even the concept of having black categories, have asian categories too. it's got to be the best performances. people vote perersonally on what they thought was the best performance. >> i think the argument too is give more opportunities so there can be more performances so you can choose. >> it's been changed in the 50 years i've been in this business. it may take longer than some people want, but ultimately i want the person to win. >> i think everyone would agree with that i don't think so. >> you do?

if you will. but she's a commentator on fox news but also an actress but famously said infamously a month ago came out and said black history month didn't really need to be in existence nor b.e.t. because she thought that created segregation. chris rock brought her out to say she's the new ambassador of outreach for diversity. she came out and said i can't wait to help everyone. >> did it fall flat? >> it's odd because she's a polarizing figure. what she's speaks of -- >> okay. but i do love "clueless." >> i think people didn't understand. >> it was a joke but he was making a joke and it did fall flat. >> leonardo dicaprio. he finally got his oscar and who
>> kate winslet. she just gazed at him. i was gazing at him too. he won finally. he was honored for an oscar. it's been a 20 year wait noirm. he got up and i think everyone -- there was a stand ovation. it was just like, everyone sort of loves him. but kate winslet was very a.org -- adoringly looking at him. that's her husband. the attention is always on leo. >> what did people think about sly stellone. >> i thought he was great. it's a bummer because sly was sort of overlooked years ago for "rocky" so overlooked again. >> so was steven spielberg and
>> that's true. it was that title, "bride of spies." seems like a rickety bridge. >> razzies. razzies are the ones to honor the worse. they were held on saturday night. so "50 shades of grey" won. "fantastic four." >> more coming? >> next two. >> didn't 50 shades the mutual fund get nominated for an oscar. >> yes. >> it didn't win. it wasn't their year. >> the weekend did get -- and so did eddie he won a razzie. >> he said he was excited.
and i already won an award. >> it's a bad, bad movie. >> jennifer garner was in "vanity fair." >> she gave a revealing interview in "vanity fair" and showed up at the oscars looking hot which is the best revenge. soups hot. so she basically said all the reports said that ben allegedly had an affair with a nanny. she said we separated months before she heard those rumblings. she said he's still the love of her life. they had three kids the evening you can't go through that without loving each other. she done regret marrying him. she said -- she was very honest but said he's complicated. when the sun shines on you it's warm and wonderful. when the sun goes way it's very cold and it can be really hard
he cast as large shadow. that either sounds like bad or good. what kind of shah dore we talking about. >> you're right. >> totally. >> here's the good news. we're exhaustive. we have 20 minutes straight. look what we have here. >> do you feel sexually exploited at this moment? >> a little bit. >> we're exhausted. >> thank you, sir. god bless you. clearly. this is enough. >> stick around. we'll play some try va. >> what's your name, by the way? >> daniel. >> daniel. daniel is going to stay through the commercial break. don't you go anywhere either because you might miss an important phone call. >> you're our fan of the night but probably not.
oh, good, just checking.ied? umm... i guess... you'd make a pretty bride in that wedding gown. oh, it's a lab coat so... hey everyone, joe's getting married! bam bam ba bam. oh, i'm not. we take time for our cheese to mature in our crispy cheez-it grooves. dry spray? that's fun. it's already dry! no wait time. this is great. it's very soft. can i keep it? (laughs) all the care of dove... ...now in a dry antiperspirant spray. enough pressure in here for ya? i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast. and you're coming with me... you realize i have gold status? mucinex sinus-max liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. let's end this. working on my feet all day gave me pain here. in my knees. but now, i step on this machine and get my number which matches my dr. scholl's custom fit orthotic inserts. now i get immediate relief from my foot pain. my knee pain.
we are back and this time to surprise our fan of the week. >> drum roll please while we spin the globe. while it's spinning it's taking us to huntsville, alabama. >> where our fan brittany brown watches us. >> hi brittany. she's joining us by skype. who is that with you >> my niece bailey. >> hi, bailey. >> we're going to tell everybody why you were chosen because brittany has three jobs. she wakes up every morning that you feel. she spends here weekends as a shoe clarke and in her spare time she babysits. >> brit sydney a devoted fan she makes time for our show.

they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief. it's fundaymond and we're back with something we like to check out. >> bobbie's redo. bobbie thomas is back with touch ups from last night's oscars. >> up always feel badly about this because you love women. you're not trying to put the ladies down. >> definitely about having fun with fashion and i love interacting with you on my social media. you're asking me what if these two ladies swapped. this was the magic wand that we waved over the red carpet and we'll start with two of my absolute favorites. julianne moore, stunning in chanel. lady gaga one of her best looks. so interesting and pretty. i couldn't help but wonder what it would look like if they swapped.
blonde. >> look at julianne moore's hair with that red and white combination. and lady gaga with the black. >> this look on lady gaga is washing her out. >> it's look. it's a little more contrast with the black. i like the blonde with the cut-outs. it's sophisticated. >> she wore brandon maxwell and that was chanel. next brie. i thought brie her first oscar red carpet i loved that this gucci dress. jennifer garner stunning. the only thing i couldn't help wonder was what if they swapped because i think her hair may have done better with that bright blue. so you see jennifer's brown hair and blue grabbed the contrast together.
she won something timeless and classic that was something i would love to see. >> she's very young. this seems like an older dress to me. >> that's true. i think she did great with this. it's what it would have looked like. now cate blanchett. she can pull dresses out and it doesn't look like a disney dress. however, i thought with jennifer's new hair color what if she had done something more colorful. she always wears black, red, navy. so let's take a look. jennifer in a little bit of color. such an interesting kind of softer look and cate does no wrong. she can wear pretty much anything. it's unbelievable. >> interesting. now kate winslet. i love her. she's one of my favorite people in hollywood. she chose a fashion forward fabric.
the only thing i wanted to see it was a heavy color and really kind of blocking. so i wanted to see her in a different ralph lauren dress. this was on his collection. it was on the runway. something that was interesting about this -- >> more slimming. >> it elongates her frame. >> when you wear strapless it can cut you. you're seeing this length. here with this asymmetrical shoulder and diagonal die as you're looking at an eye line like this. the drape on the dress goes out and this hip brings in. this was something that lightened her up overall and i thought in general i just thing she's so stunning it's cool she pulled something new off. she's been to so many of these award shows and it was nice. >> i like that. >> next sofia vergar. >> she often wears a dress that looks similar to the one she
>> it's her signature look. she knows how to pull it off. is more more, or is less more? >> she has such statement earrings on. >> i liked the original. i thought well it lets the structure of the dress stand out but she's so -- this is marcasa. they are known for ornate construction or embellishment. >> beauty is another big trend that pops up on the carpet. red eyes. this red eye shadow, coppery pink. people are doing it in kind of -- >> it's not a good look for me. >> it can make your eyes look tired. i'm curious if people at home -- do they like this look or not like this look?
>> i liked this one. >> thank you. oscar fashions aren't the only thing trending, unfortunately, so is the flu. how do you know you have it or cold or allergies. >> the doctor is in right after this. my son and i used to watch the red carpet shows on tv now, i'm walking them. life is unpredictable one thing i need to be predictable is to be flake free. because i have used head and shoulders for 20 years. used regularly, it removes up to 100% of flakes keeping you protected every week, every month, every year you ready ma? always life is unpredictable, so embrace it! head and shoulders. live flake free for life a heart attack doesn't care if you run everyday, or if you're young or old. no matter who you are a heart attack can happen without warning. if you've had a heart attack, a bayer aspirin regimen can help prevent another one. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

flu who got the flu shot. reading that stat is surprising. >> flu shot effectiveness is up to 59%. >> what is it normally. >> that's good. usually 50% to 60%. we don't get to 100%. this year's flu vaccine, the strains that are covered are covering the predominant strain that's circulating right now. >> they got it right. >> they got it right this year. >> you should still get your flu shot now. >> absolutely. still get it. >> we're just getting to sort of the thick of it right now and flu season lasts until may. >> two weeks to inoculate. >> how do we know we have the flu or something else. >> fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, fatigue a couple of the symptoms. how do you distinguish between flu and common cold. has to do with the severity of
with flu you're knocked out. you're too tired to even watch tv. you're exhausted. usually comes on quickly. you're really sick for two to three days. one thing to mention, if you improve from the flu and then a couple of days later you get sick again worry about a secondary pneumonia. that's something to remind people of. >> what do you? are you supposed to take an antibiotic? >> if you're a young adult and relatively healthy stay at home. older than 65 or younger than teenage of 2 and we have a monitor, people another higher risk include people whose immune systems are kmd or pregnant. you should be tested. but you should be treated with anti-virals within the first 48 hours. they lessen the severity, duration and complications. >> something like tamiflu. >> and two others are available.
people say i have allergies when you think flu. >> allergy season, sadly -- we always associate allergy season with spring. they are seasonal. but they can start in february. a few factors that will also, you know, increase or earlier the on set of the allergy season has to do with the winter we've had. we had a mild winter. plants are pollinating early. >> the birds are going crazy. >> it's been wetter. more mold. pollen is the highest amount. dry windy. sometimes when there's a lot of rain washing the pollen away it rebounds. >> take your topicals. >> your over-the-counter. basically that's the last allergy treatment. allergy shots too. couple of things.
if you're allergic to something can you cure yourself of the allergy? not necessarily. one thing, know what your triggers are. if you know that running outside in the morning, exercise inside. close your windows. close your screens. use air conditioning. check your pollen counts. get that with the weather report. outside doing yard work, take a shower. wash your hair. in terms of treatment -- so, yeah. the first line is definitely over-the-counter. use antihistamine and immunotherapy. >> sounds great. thanks doctor. >> it only happens once every four years. >> presidential election. >> no leap day. we're celebrating with fun trivia.
